Reclaiming yarn

Well, this is more like ripping out a project that was started years ago and will never see completion.  The original notes are long gone.  Plus I don’t think I have it in me to knit the second (boring, boring, BORING) sock even if I did find the notes.

This 413-yard ball of yarn is Plymouth Italian Collection Sockotta and is comprised of 45% cotton, 40% superwash wool, and 15% nylon.  That’s plenty for a different pair of socks, mitts, gloves or a shawl.  I thought about overdying it but I do like the neutral colors that would work for anyone.

In my opinion, kinky yarn presents challenges when knitting (or crocheting).

So I wound the raveled yarn around my homemade PVC pipe knitty-noddy,gave it a good dousing under the shower, and hung it up to dry.

Ready for knitting…

  1. I know how you feel! I have languishing wips because of their boredom factor. You know they’re not the most exciting project when you feel you accomplish more frogging them than you do knitting them!

  2. I don’t like textured yarn. Makes life unnecessarily difficult. I’m currently in a slump. I have one on the hook and need to finish it but I don’t wanna.
